Protein & Carbohydrate foods should never be combined.


A leafy green salad can be eaten with any protein, carbohydrates, or fat.
Fats inhibit the digestion of protein. If you must have a fat with a protein, eat a mixed
vegetable salad. It will offset the inhibiting effect on digestion.
You should never drink liquids with or immediately following a meal.
* Listed for clarification but not recommended.

Food Combining is not mandatory. It may be useful for those with digestive problems.
Fruit alone may be too glycemic for those with carbohydrate sensitivity.
